The Peekskill Business Improvement District has brought Wesley Wofford’s statue, Harriet Tubman – The Journey to Freedom to downtown Peekskill. In light of recent events like the pandemic and the racial equality movement, the presence of the statue in our downtown takes on even more meaning. Positioned outdoors, admirers can experience the statue in a socially distanced manner while celebrating our community’s rich history and cultural diversity from mid-December through Black History Month in 2021.
Celebrating Life and Legacy - In conjunction with the very popular Saturday Academy. See presentations by Peekskill City Singers, a one-woman play, drumming and dancing and more!!
